Perfect location in the middle of Siena. We had trouble navigating to the hotel and went the wrong way up a one way street. No trouble as the hotel staff immediately appeared to guide us the right way. Friendly welcome and good rooms. The interior is beautiful. The bedrooms are not huge but perfectly good and very comfortable pillows. Breakfast... More

This is a very nice hotel in Siena. We were there only one night but the rooms were comfortable and air conditioning worked well. The location is excellent as it is right in the middle of town and close to all the major sites. We would definitely stay here again if we are going through Siena!!

Driving here was a challenge, but the concierge (Erion? from Albania) piloted us there via phone. He warmly welcomed us at checkin and helped explain the parking/valet and hotel logistics. He was extraordinarily helpful over the next few days in helping us find a supermarket, green juice bar, Mailboxes, etc., pharmacy. The concierge Massimo was also a gem--local doctor came... More

Siena is age eat city and is very lively very beautiful and much to see and do if you are on foot. If you drive in as we did the Waze sat nav sends you round and round the outside of the city and then tells you you have arrived when you are nowhere near! It's 99% pedestrianised! We spend... More

Location is fantastic, everything is on your doorstep; taxi's drop you off in the ancient cobble-stoned square just to the north of the hotel where the world's oldest bank is located. The check-in and breakfast staff were super friendly and very helpful (and their English is far better than my Italian!). Rooms are comfortable and "traditional" although on the small... More

We stayed for one night with our family with young children as part of a 5 day Tuscan road trip. The hotel is located in the historic city centre, with restricted car access, but the staff was very helpful in guiding us to the property. The hotel is a very elegant boutique style hotel with nicely appointed rooms and great... More

We drove around for 30 minutes, finally parked the car and walked to the square to find the hotel. We were told at the desk that the roads are restricted and that you need a special pass to come in some special back way. The sent a bellman with us to drive our car to the hotel. You park in...
